    Additional Information

    For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by pregnancy and birth. By the age of 8, I knew that I wanted to catch babies as a career. It was not until I studied abroad in my junior year of college, however, that I seriously considered a career as a midwife. After graduating from college, I became a researcher at Brigham and Womens Hospital and a birth doula. As a doula, I mostly attended births in a volunteer capacity, serving women who often had no other support. I was honored to attend each birth and my desire to become a midwife was strengthened. A year after I became a doula, I entered the Yale School of Nursing Midwifery Program. During my last rotation of midwifery school, I had the privilege of caring for women at the CHA Cambridge Birth Center and CHA Cambridge Hospital. I was thrilled to be in a place that provided women with different options on how and where to give birth. I loved learning from the Cambridge midwives and feel very honored to have joined such a wonderful team.

    When I am not working at CHA Cambridge Birth Center, I am often out on adventures with my husband and our dog, Sherlock. I can generally be found hiking up a mountain, kayaking down a river or running around a field playing softball or ultimate frisbee.
